A bit of a kerfuffle over at edublogs about advertising in client blogs. It's not the advertising itself that people objected to, it seems, it's that they had no idea the advertising was taking place. From what I see, it's a case of good intentions gone south - the idea was that nobody who actually used the blogs would see the ads, just itinerant visitors sent in from Google searches. Problem is, this tactic made the ads invisible to blog owners, who as a result felt a bit blindsided.
